New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez allegedly shot a man while driving back from a strip club in Miami in mid-February following an argument. The case was filed on the 13th of June and dismissed on the 17th, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that, per the agent of the alleged victim David Jaroslawicz, the suit was refiled yesterday.
The refiling of this suit was expected to be refiled yesterday, and there are some interesting things to consider. The victim, Alexander S. Bradley, stated in the original lawsuit that he didn’t know who shot him, and we have learned that it was allegedly Aaron Hernandez only after the murder (which he has reportedly been arrested for “in connection) story developed yesterday. Also, who the hell files a lawsuit months later and doesn’t call the cops? Was he still friends with Hernandez? Doubt it. Was he afraid of Hernandez? Maybe, but he would have to be a really stupid coward for that to happen.
Bradley is seeking $100,000 in damages after losing his right eye, needing reconstructive surgery, and injuring parts of his face and arm. We’ll see how many legs this lawsuit has on Hernandez, who is already in huge trouble for the North Attleboro murder based on various recent reports, with the central one being that Aaron Hernandez has indeed been arrested due to the evidence connecting him as at least an accomplice.
